Urban Artist: Canada vs US Podcast

Urban Artist: Canada vs US

We ask the question to four different people involved in different areas of the music industry: "Why do you think it is more difficult for a Canadian urban artist to become successful on the world stage compared to an American urban artist." Then we discuss the answer and give our thoughts on why the person asked gave their particular response. Each episode asks a different music industry person this question, and the entire episode is set to songs by various independent urban artists.
